Jaguars down Raiders behind strong running game

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — David Garrard threw three touchdown passes, and Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jennings each topped 100 rushing yards as the Jaguars beat the Oakland Raiders 38-31 Sunday in a game filled with big plays.

Jacksonville overcame a 10-point deficit to win for the fifth time in the last six games, setting up a critical AFC South game at Indianapolis next week.

The Jaguars (8-5) stayed one game ahead of the Colts and can clinch the division title next week with a victory at Indianapolis and a loss by the Houston Texans.

The Raiders (6-7) lost for the third time in the last four weeks and faded from postseason contention.

The Jaguars can thank Garrard, Jennings, Jones-Drew and a huge defensive stand late for getting in position to clinch. There were six scoring plays of at least 30 yards in the game, including three by Oakland running back Darren McFadden.



  1. Now lets just PRAY we beat Indy! GO JAGS!!!!!!!!!

    1. Dug out the sweatshirt my cousin got for $5 at a store in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I’ll be wearing it during this unseasonably chilly weather…because a “throw-back” to 1996 can’t be all bad, can it?
